Con Cast Pipe was awarded the 2016 Ontario Concrete Award in the Infrastructure category for our supply of our ConSpan culvert system on the Derry Road/CN Grade Separation Project in Milton, Ontario.
At an awards ceremony held on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, Con Cast Pipe were presented the award as a member of the winning team. The new four-lane underpass eliminated an existing at-grade rail crossing on Derry Road in Milton, ON. Challenges included maintaining road and rail traffic through the site during construction. The project was carried out for Halton Region by a team that included R.V. Anderson Associates Ltd., New-Alliance Ltd., Dufferin Concrete and Con Cast Pipe.
Con Cast Pipe would like to congratulate Dufferin Construction Company on receiving the OPWA 2016 Project of the Year Award for the Structures Greater Than $50 Million Category, for their Denison Road Grade Separation project.
Con Cast Pipe supplied the ConSpan Bridge System for the project. The entire project included two multi-track rail bridges, an extensive retaining wall system, and 4000 m3 precast concrete storm-water retention tank and pumping station. The Denison Road Grade Separation project is an essential component of the new Union-Pearson Expressway, and divides pedestrian, vehicle, and high-speed rail traffic.
